Carnival Splendor Cruise Review by homebody30
- Sail Date: January 2019
- Destination: Hawaii
- Cabin Type: Balcony
The ship's design is not very good. The decor is very garish and worn down. There was what looked like mold on the roof of one deck.
The main pool was closed more days than it was open. This is due to all the activities on the Lido deck. Why would ballroom dance lessons be conducted beside the pool? There were quite a few other areas that were never used at all.
The food was blah. Not a great selection. If you didn't like the dish offered, there was only pizza as an alternative, as all the dining areas offered the same menu for that night. The burger/hotdogs stand was only open a few hours a day, so that wasn't an option either.
Overall a good vacation.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews
EnsenadaWhat you would expect from a Mexico town. Street vendors every 2 steps plus the shop workers all trying to get you to buy from them. Just a nice No Thank You would discourage them. The bus to shopping strip was $4usd round trip, or a 1/2 hour walk.View All 505 Ensenada Cruise Port Reviews
The port there is very nice. Seals were sunbathing on the rocks. There is a large Mexican flag and fountain park area just beside the port.

HiloFree shuttle to walmart, or other shopping areas, and downtown. Very nice place. We grabbed a taxi and went to Richardsons Beach. This is a black sand beach, and an inlet is there where the Turtles come in. There were 3 green turtles when we were there. Best day!View All 537 Hilo Cruise Port Reviews

HonoluluVery busy city. Waikiki beach is a 10-minute ride away from the port. There were also free shuttles to shopping. Very convenient and easy to get around.View All 640 Honolulu Cruise Port Reviews
